. joining me now is bob shrum, democratic strategist, and chris stal ball, co-host of "the cycle" on msnbc. bob, let ne start with you. is this as bad as it looks for romney or should i be looking at it more holistically? >> well, i think they should have said that ohio is a big hole in our planet. romney is not an ohio kind of guy. out there he comes across like a guy from another planet. in fact, there's one bain man on youtube that's had 350,000 hits in ohio. >> 350,000 hits just in the state of ohio? >> just in the state of ohio. and then he talks about getting tough on outsourcing to china but he's the one that outsourced to china. and now he says, i care about the middle class but gives no specifics. it's not believable. look, the guy did a terrible mistake by saying the 47%. the man who said he doesn't care about 47% of the people is heading for not even getting 47% of the vote. >> krystal, when you look at the polls, and not just the "new york times" poll, the president has a big lead. 10%, "new york times."

in virginia this year, signed into law by the republican governor in the state, bob mcdonnell. virginia voters opposed that law by 17 points. the anti-abortion crusade that has been undertaken this year by republican-led state government in virginia is not popular in virginia. and now virginia women are prepared to take it out on the presidency, right? they're planning to vote against the republicans' candidate for president in their state by 18 points. and that was the context for a really important move made by virginia's republican attorney general this week, a move that could be important for the presidential race in virginia. this week the attorney general certified a new set of regulations targeted only at abortion clinics in the united states. these rules are not just for oral surgeons or plastic surgery centers, just targeting abortion providers. it's red tape that is specifically designed to make it economically impossible to operate an abortion clinic in virginia. that's what's expected to happen in the state. most of the state's abortion clinics are in danger of being closed once th
presidential debates, to tell obama and romney when they're both wrong? >> meanwhile, bob dole is talking about life after losing a presidential election. the republican pinned an article in "the washington post," saying that in washington, losing an election is viewed as, sort of like death. he went on to say, quote, sure, losing an election hurts, but i've experienced worst. and at an age where every day is precious, brooding over what might have been is self-defeating. and sarah palin says no to "dancing with the stars." why? well, the former vice presidential nominee calling herself a, quote, klutz. meanwhile, palin's daughter, bristol, is about to be on the show for a second time. >>> up next, george zimmerman's attorney talking to a group of supporters. who are they? find out after the break. and closing arguments in september. what mitt romney and president obama have to say right now. this is a saturday afternoon and you are watching msnbc. the place for politics. i have a cold, and i took nyquil, but i'm still stubbed up.

the answers are. i'm joined by democratic strategist bob shrum and salon's joan walsh. first, however, we have two new national polls on the presidential race. let's check the "hardball" scoreboard. according to a new "washington post"/abc news poll, president obama has a two-point lead holding there, 49%/47%. same score in the new politico poll. obama by two, 49%/47%. "the new york times" this weekend reported on the two campaigns' ongoing debate preps. here is what they said about romney's prep. quote, mr. romney's team has concluded that the debates are about creating moments and has equipped him with a series of zingers he's memorized and has been practicing on aides since august. bob shrum, you have been on that particular role, preparing candidates for debate. what do you make of romney, a rather stiff customer to begin with, coming off as sort of a henny youngman or whatever, some sort of a don rickles with some zingers. i don't think of him as a zinger kind of guy where obama is expected to be left helpless. what do you make of that strategy? >> first of all, if you had it, you wouldn'
's bob costas. it's the disastrous call by replacement refs that game seattle a win over monday night that's fills coaches and players and thousands of football players. president obama twirted saying that nfl fans on both siesd of the aisle hope the refs' lockout is settled soon. >> did you watch that packers' game last night? give me a break. i fell leak they work part time in the president's budget office. >> let's get into this. rob, i've got to throw this rt fast. where can we get a tight shot of this, the "osei can't you se oh say can't you see" with the refs with the seeing-eye dog. this is a billion-dollar industry and it's kind of sofa change that they're not willing to pay to bring them back. >> it's basically $40 million a year in an industry that has $9 billion a year in revenue. the owners want the refs to semithe 401(k) plan instead of the pension plan. they want to be able to fire refs who mess up calls. the owners have dug in. they're used to winning things. they had a lockout with the players. they're used to winning and they're trying to win against the refrs but ove
and they disagree. i'm joined by bob shrum and the great david corn, famous for having unearthed that very important 47% speech by romney he never wanted us to hear. first, we have a new national poll to tell you about. let's check the "hardball" scoreboard. according to a new battleground poll, president obama has a three-point lead among likely voters. 50% number, a key number, obama, 50%, romney, 47%. let's go to the issue of the debate. mitt romney seems to have changed his tune on health care. here he was on "60 minutes." >> does the government have a responsibility to provide health care to the 50 million americans who don't have it today? >> well, we do provide care for people who don't have insurance, people -- if someone has a heart attack, they don't sit in their apartment and die. we pick them up in an ambulance and take them to the hospital and give them care, and different states have different ways of providing for that care. >> that's the most expensive way to do it. >> well -- >> in the emergency room. >> again, different states have different ways of doing that. >> it's interesting
in next week's debate. bob and senior political analyst mark halperin joining me now. bob, you've done a lot of debate prep over the years, memorable the lloyd bentsen debate. >> that was the first one i helped in, but i've done a lot more since then. >> a good one liner in that one for sure. >> the one liner is very interesting. you can bet that in these debate preps people are looking for the line and what happens with these candidates is under pressure they tend to default to what they're saying out on the campaign trail and what -- in 1988, the benson prep team knew -- >> against dan quayle. >> who became vice president, that he had a tendency to go around justifying himself by saying he had as many years in the congress as jfk did when elected president. that violates number one my primary rule in politics which is don't compare yourself to jfk or reagan, you're no, not going to come off well. it gave benson an opening. he didn't say it until the fourth time asked about his experience by tom brokaw. the first three times he had a different answer and i think he felt the fourth tim

of the ticket in this case. >> in terms of the soothing, dana, bob dole was very soothing to mr. romney or he wrote over this weekend an op ed piece that i'm sure was intended to be soothing. i certainly wouldn't have liked it if i was the nominee. but his intent, i'm sure, was to be soothing because he wrote no one aspires to be defeated -- a defeated presidential candidate. but then he went on further and he argued that there is light at the end of the tunnel for dole that was an improbable career, pitching visa, duncan donuts and viagra. and he goes on to say, the greatest of life blessings cannot be counted in electoral votes. so he's telling mr. romney, i assume, don't worry about it. you can do what i did and i guess that's soothing. >> it's soothing in a many of speaking but there's a crucial different here and that is that bob dole in 1996 fought the good fight. but, look, the economy by then was booming. nobody really gave him a chance of winning. what is happening here is you have romney losing a race that everybody thought he was perfectly capable of winning. so if that is indeed w

. he had bob portman, he had a perfect chance to win ohio to say i'm a centrist mainstream republican. here i am. i told you people on the right where i stand on things. i'm now not going to pick the most radical, both fis fiscally and in terms of physical policy guy in washington of any influence. he went to ryan and he stuck with him now and he brought him nothing, ryan. >> charlie crist, a rmepublican and now independent and he does support president obama. governor, good to see you. to carl's point as well as lynn's and let's talk about this selection of paul ryan. you come from a state obviously with a very large older population, key voting bloc. they vote in big percentages. did he buy into, my choosing ryan, the medicare plan which now in every swing state shows not just that people favor president obama's approach but they favor it by double digits. this isn't even close. >> it's pretty stunning. i think the selection did make that a crystal clear choice between these two candidates. what's happening in florida, the latest poll has a nine-point advantage for president obama.

. in the first interview romney and ryan gave after ryan joined the ticket, bob schieffer pointed out ryan budget plan, including his plan to voucherize, that's a great word, medicare, could be trouble for romney. let's listen. >> there's no question your campaign has been trying to make this a election a referendum on barack obama. now some people are saying you are making it a referendum on paul ryan's budget plan. >> well, i have my budget plan, as you know, that i have put out, and that's the budget plan that we're going to run on. >> and again this sunday romney had to distance himself from ryan's positions and assert that he's the man at the top of the ticket. let's listen. >> the president's cutting $716 billion from current medicare. i disagree with that. i'd put those dollars back into medicare. >> mr. ryan has proposed something similar, almost precisely the same number, 716. >> he was going to use that money to reduce the budget deficit. i'm putting it back into medicare and i'm the guy running for president. >> well, what a miserable time he has. all he does is defend himself against

[ male announcer ] the exceedingly nimble, ridiculously agile, tight turning, fun to drive 2013 smart. ♪ >> if todd and the people of missouri prove it's a close race, what's the moral base for not backing the republican nominee. >>> newt gingrich was in missouri today causing trobl for romney and campaigning for todd akin. a candidate many in the republican party called on to leave the race. >> if it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to shut that whole thing down. assuming that didn't work or something, i think that should be punishment, and that ought to be in the rapist and not attacking the child. >> the legitimate rape candidate has since apologized and he seems to think he will have no problem gaining support from his fellow republicans, including mitt romney. >> my expectation would be in october governor romney is going to be for the entire ticket, for todd akin and clearly romney has to carry missouri in order to win the presidency. and when he carries missouri
and nasty and weirdly nasty. joining us is a distinguished senior fellow, bob, thank you for being here. a difficult survey, right? >> that's a great survey. >> my favorite part is your choices on how abysmal president obama is, his overall performance. after you get to abysmal, there's still lower choices for you. so underground tactics like this. this isn't quite the racist campaign flier under the windshield wiper in the church parking lot, but it's the digital age version of that. how do you know whether or not this stuff is going to work? >> the the first thing you need to to know about the gop is this is a party that needs professional counselling. they don't believe in evolution, they don't believe the president was born in this country. they don't believe the polls now. so now they are running these weird ads. but they are in fantasy land. they are going back to an era when these kinds of ads could get some traction. but it's the same old thing. it's presenting the candidate, the democratic candidate as the other. they think it's easier now because barack obama is african-americ

"morning joe" starts right now. >>> he is in new york for the u.n. general assembly or as we like to think of it, the reason i can't get to work because of traffic! the event is a gathering of the diplomatic juggalos. an incredible opportunity for our president not just to address the world community but for some high-level president-on-prez action. >> the white house says he has no plans to have any private meetings with world leaders. >> oh. well. probably protocol. this is not the time for one-on-one meetings with other world leaders. >> our research shows it's been 20 years since the president has been to that meeting and not met one on one with a foreign leader. >> oh. well, i guess if the world leads would like to meet with him personally, they can just donate $5 to his campaign and take
, mitt romney has had nothing to do with it. >> so bob reich, i guess he's right there for every gay one-armed a.m. u tea on the upper west side of manhattan. >> i can make almost less sense of that than i can make of mitt romney. there is a choice that has to be made. republicans are going to be making that choice. and the question, the narrative that is going to be coming out over the next few weeks is the problem here with the candidate or is it problem with a right-wing gop that is out of step with the rest of americament and a lot of republicans are getting the long knives out and they want to attack romney as the worst candidate they could have possibly put up. but actually romney is doing exactly what the gop has wanted. he is the gop's candidate because he has been saying what the gop has been saying. a right wing gop that has all of the intolerance, all of the narrow mindedness, doesn't really care about the 47%. that's what the policy is. >> i have to mark down robert reich as being unable to make sense of rush limbaugh. your name is being added to the list of everyone else who
bob dole. >> they don't say it in this way. they're throwing this against the wall and hoping it will stick. again, it seems to charge up the people who have already made up their minds, made up their minds years ago. >> here are the smart guys in -- i guess, boston. mitt romney has been running red meat ads on medicare. this is false adds. this is when he says it's feeding his base, obama. >> here he is in 1996 president clinton and a bipartisan congress helped end welfare as we know it, by requiring work for welfare. on july 12th president obama quietly announced a plan to gut welfare reform by dropping work requirements. under obama's plan you wouldn't are to work or train for a job. they just send you your welfare check. and welfare to work goes back to being plain old welfare. mitt romney will restore the work requirement because it works. >> so all white people. it's fine. that normally wouldn't be the worst thing in the world, but when that ad actually ran and hit the air waves romney defended it to "usa today's" susan page and in the interview romney said, quote, romne
his campaign, gop donors may abandon him like they did bob dole in 1996. romney faces the very real prospect that republican donors super pacs and other parts of the gop support structure will towards helping him and towards a last-ditch senate majority and a senate house majority. >> the problem that mitt romney has, he now has less than 40 days to turn this thing around. this is a man who has been running for president for six years and now it boils down to 40 days, three debates, one more if you include the vice presidential debate to try to convince the american people who are now really paying attention that he is the person to replace president obama in office. and it just doesn't seem like that it's working. again, we've got 40 day. less than 40 day. so anything can happen. after all, this is politics. but it seem highly unlikely. >> now, erin, but at the same time, isn't it a little kind of cynical for some of the republicans to act like it's just romney and not the ideas and the policies of the republicans? because i'm starting to see a strategy here of sacrifice romney but
